Laurel and Hardy - The Television Series
13 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Even the insignificant short films in the Laurel and Hardy talking era were contributors to the evolution of television series. In the 19th century, we had the serial novel. When Chaplin came along, we had the serial short films. With 'Bacon Grabbers', we had episodic short films.
